Why Paul Johnson chose Morgan
We are fans of Mid-Century Modern styles and fell in love with this home as soon as we toured it. Purchased from a boot maker, we enjoyed the challenges of transforming this house from a craftsman's workshop to the cozy retreat it is today. We believe you'll enjoy the peaceful settings as much as we do!
What makes this House unique
We are the third owners of this unique home. It was build in 1959 as a family home, then sold to a boot maker who used in for his business. We bought the home and kept the original charm and remodeled to fit our tastes and needs. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac, private, quiet, and peaceful with plenty of parking including a boat. The Canyons at Whitney is a small residential community that has a full time security guard that patrols daily and is a member of the volunteer fire department. Abundant hiking trails and are great for mountain biking. Great bird watching, plentiful wild life, and serene location., plus canyon breezes year round and very little traffic.

Great place close to Dallas
Very easy place with great communication. Wonderful architecture, comfortable and well stocked. These guys have worked hard to make your stay comfortable and it shows. Beds would be a bit hard for a week but are good for a weekend. Enjoy the wraparound balcony!
Had everything we needed.
All the windows and view were incredible.
Hummingbirds and Cardinals flying in and out all day.
Harvey (the neighbor) was very helpful and welcoming.
Will plan another stay for sure.
Thank you for your kind review! We hope to host you again.

Lake Whitney meets Mid Century Modern perfection!!
Our lake weekend was flawless thanks to Paul’s beautiful home! Hands down the most well appointed, accommodating & spacious rental our group of 9 has ever stayed in. Hosts quickly responded to all questions. As a chef the kitchen was lacking for nothing! The rest of the house was well laid out and cozy for all. The patio is a must for star gazing at night. The private cove is a short mile away with a beach & boat dock. We enjoyed hours of water time. The road down is steep...trucks/suvs are best. We will be back for a longer stay!
Home away from Home
We rented the house for a family get away. It exceeded our expectations on every level! It was very clean and we had everything we needed!! The scenery and wildlife were gorgeous! We had plenty of parking for our boat. The neighbor was very nice and helpful! Our communication with the host was great! It was roomy and homie!! Loved the bird watching and the lake!! We will definitely be back and recommend to our friends and family!!
Loved This Place!
Quiet, Roomy, Built into the surroundings, all modern furnishings, and appliances. I had family come. Room for parking off the road.
Views were great from main deck that wraps around most of the upper level.
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Much thanks!
End of June stay - Baumgard
The house is very well kept and has S OK me amazing views. A lot of seating in both the dining/kitchen area as well as in the downstairs room to host a dinner or games. There were labels placed on things that were useful, perhaps that's should also be placed on the drawers in the bedrooms with clothes in them. I thought one of our guest may have left some stuff, but it was there prior to our stay and could be labeled to avoid confusion. Everything was excellent and if I stay at lake Whitney again, this would be at the too of my list.
Thank you for your review Chris!
We understand your surprise at seeing personal clothing in the drawers. We have labeled the drawers and other areas more clearly to help our future customers. We hope you will stay with us again!

Our home is located on the south west side of Whitney Lake on the end of a cul de sac. A wrap around deck provides a peaceful view of the lake and the canyons. 40 miles from Waco in the Texas Hill Country where limestone formations abound and the cliffs overlooking the lake provide a wonderful escape!
